Answered: How Did Candide Ski on that Wave?

Candide Thovex and Audi's quattro 2 is chock-full of shots which strain credulity. Did Candide really land that double-backflip to dirt? How did he manage to ski at top speed into that hut?

Accusations of overt editing have plagued the Flying Frenchman since the One of Those Days series, but his new behind-the-scenes series is pulling back the curtain on his enigmatic edits.

One of the more mind-boggling shots from quattro 2 shows Candide skiing a wave straight onto a Jamaican beach. While it's not hard to surmise that Candide probably didn't paddle out to the break with his skis on, his new BTS reveals even more trickery than we expected. In a wild turn of events, it turns out that the ski-surfing was shot in two wave pools, one in Spain and one in Wales. 

Here's the finished product, in case you're one of the few who hasn't seen it countless times:

How Speed Flying Has Become A Tool For the Chamonix Elite

The funny thing about Chamonix isn’t that it’s home to some of the most extreme sh** you’ll ever see in the action sports world. It’s that the vast majority of the visitors to this tiny French mountain town are actually international tourists intent on taking the famous tram up the Aiguille du Midi to take a photo of Mont Blanc – and eat some crepes and croissants. Hop on the Telepherique with your skis any day in May, and you’ll likely be surrounded by a mass of tourists speaking in a

Located in the Highlands of Southeast Australia, Thredbo is one of the premier resorts of the continent, and has the longest runs in Australia.  Thredbo Trail Map. Photo: Thredbo
